Album Summary

>Liadov, Anatole : The enchanted lake, Op. 62
Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

A vividly executed chapter in the ongoing discography that makes vividly present the musical sympathies between the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Andrew Litton with the intrinsically Russian musical temperaments of Sergei Rachmaninov's sprawling Second Symphony and Anatoly Liadov's evanescent tone poem The Enchanted Lake. Recorded in Super Audio.

The Guardian, 26th November 2015
Rachmaninov's Second Symphony is often accused of being gargantuan, schmaltzy and overblown. In Andrew Litton's new recording with the Bergen Philharmonic, it sounds gargantuan, schmaltzy - and just blown enough, if you like your Rachmaninov big and extrovert.

Notes & Reviews:
